Student Contest

Visit http://www.earthday.org/journalismaward to learn more about a student competition.  It “is designed to bring the hard facts about school food to entire school communities – in the students’ own words.” According to the link, this is “a competition for student journalists … Articles submitted for consideration must be about the need for healthy, sustainable school food and must have been published in a school newspaper.” The top prize is $1500!

Let me know if you want to collaborate on this!
